Unable to locate a few simple seeds so we can enjoy some fresh veggies this summer and fall. No seeds locally. Went on line to Burbee and Gurney. No seeds available. Contacted sister in Texas and daughter in Wisonsin, no seeds available. Meanwhile dairies are throwing away their products. Farmers are unable to sell their truck crops. Ranchers have stopped taking their cattle to the market. Local theifs of eggs from coops.

Another way to force us to cow-tow to the elites. Hungry people are easier to control.

Feed back?

Buy the vegetables. Plant the seeds. It's cheaper than buying a pack of seeds most of the time. Just buy the ripe stuff on sale.

Lookup Dave's Seeds on Amazon... my brother just purchased a lot of different seeds 2 weeks ago and they have all been delivered.

As for me, haven't purchased seeds in a decade or so and have 16 4x8 raised beds ..

I was going to make a thread on how to raise your own carrot seeds but have been busy expanding the garden.



ETA... BUY Heirloom!!!!

most veggies you buy are hybrids and do not reproduce very well. That is why we need to go back to heirloom seeds.

I have always left one or plants of each kind to go to seed and save the seeds for next season. Grow sensibly save seeds.

It couldn't be that their is a pandemic and people purchased a lot of seeds in a panic move.

Below is just one of pages and pages worth of listings on Amazon.

I'll send you a PM with a company you can get seed from.

The problem with most people seems to be that they don't understand biennials.

Hopefully the green houses will have tomato plants later this month.

I never had any problems but I buy organic vegetables. I actually have to throw away or pull a lot of the plants because they grow in my compost bin. I threw a leech in there and it got enormous and it was delicious. Packed with flavor. Made some soup with it. Years ago I threw a cantalope in there and had a little patch of them. Also very good.

Typo, or are you talking about something other than the blood sucking slugs when you say a "leech?"

Seeds got very expensive here in the UK. It happened real fast too.

I bought a ton of seeds a little over a week ago from the local Ace Hardware. I still have a fair amount stored from several seasons ago, but Ace had good stock. Haven't checked them lately, though.

Try local, smaller places.

I've seen , on social media, that some of the stores that aren't allowing us to buy non-essential items, are not allowing the purchase of seeds.
It's been years since i've tried to grow anything. I really suck at it. I think I'm gonna try my luck at it now. Can't hurt.

I've used these before, and it looks like they're stocked and shipping (perhaps slower due to high demand though):

Seed Savers

Sustainable Seeds

Jung Seed

Victory Seeds

Good luck and happy gardening!

If you really can't find any ...
Cut the roots off whole onions (leave a generous portion of the onion with the roots , plant them. Same with leeks , spring onions etc .
Get potatoes and garlic from shop , plant them whole / split .
Buy living herb pots , take cuttings and propagate by rooting in water .
Try watering and fertilizing edible weeds

Also , cut generous tops off carrots and plant , hoping they aren't F1 s

Tomatoes sometimes peppers from shops often have viable seeds

Hemp pulses dry peas and beans from shops often grow.
